US Super Carrier


The US Navy's fleet of aircraft carriers are at the heart of global American military force. With nuclear-powered oceanic range, complements of nearly 5,000 crew, and typically carrying more than 70 combat aircraft, US carriers can remain on station for months, delivering aerial combat strikes on distant targets around the clock. The Haynes Super Carrier Manual will be a unique opportunity to take readers inside one of the very latest generations of aircraft carriers. The US Navy has given author Chris McNab and photographer Patrick Bunce official clearance to spend time at sea on one of its Nimitz or Gerald R. Ford Class carriers. The Haynes Super Carrier Manual will be a must-have fully-illustrated publication for understanding modern US aircraft carriers and carrier aviation, with unrivalled insights into the working life of the crew and the technicalities of life on board.
